Hackers start to piss me off!

Sooner or later, Hackers will be more evil then Bobby Kotick and Bin laden combined.

The Meerkat2894d ago

Bobby Kotick and Bin laden don't even try to hide the fact that they are bad.

But Peter Molyneux is truly evil. He pretends to be your friend, promises you the world. know the rest.

ChristianGamer2894d ago

Truly evil? If this doesn't get reported as offensive, trolling and off topic I'm going to eat my foot

GrieverSoul2894d ago (Edited 2894d ago )

WOW! The homebrew keeps coming!! /sarcasm

Was this what these hackers wanted all along?! To put a double sized tire in a small car?! Is that fun in anyway possible?! What satisfaction do you get when you win a race and you know you´re cheating?! I honestly dont get it... its beyond comprehension... I hope SONY gets these bastards in court and makes them go to jail for a couple of years. Maybe they will crack the soap effect while leaning down in the showers or maybe hack the prison security system and escape. Now that would be a feat! ;)

user8586212894d ago

peter molyneux a douche, he hypes up features of a game that are just useless and downgraded

e.g co-op, the stupid dog, interacting with npc

hay2894d ago (Edited 2894d ago )

@The Meerkat: No, Creationists are the only true evil IMO.

Right now I see that game breaking hacks and piracy is merely collateral damage of the overwhelming urge to bring freedom and prosperity(homebrew and other os) to the PS3. /s

i swear if the GT5 online turn into a cheat fest like COD
im reporting every fag i see cheating

Soldierone2893d ago

Hackers - skill-less noobs that need to cheat and make the odds in their favor and usually still end up losing by terms of bans or other means that make them cry and pout even more.

Cure - kick them out of the basement or put them in jail.

bananlol2893d ago

Nothing wrong with modding a game as long as you dont go online and ruin it for other people. Sony need to block psn acess asap, i wont judge people who pirate, as i have bought countless second hand games, but if you go online and ruin for people who bought the game then you are indeed a bad person.

bruddahmanmatt2893d ago

My God some of you people need to just STFU with the crying already. As others have pointed out, there's nothing wrong with hacks so long as they don't ruin games for others. Obviously you will have a few jackasses annoying the online community with their creations but as far as messing around offline, sometimes it's just fun to tinker with things in an attempt to see what you can come up with. Launching quads using AT Mines in Bad Company 2 isn't exactly playing the game as it was intended to be played but WGAF when it's so damn fun?

@ChristianGamer please start eating your foot now!

Well I wont be having any problems with this as i'll only be playing with friends&family in private matches.

I don't have time or patience to deal with douche bag people who just want to cheat or generally ruin the experience for others.

Thugbot1872894d ago

On the next console, I'm sure Sony will think twice about allowing Homebrew. Another thing that will have to change is how the games are hosted. Sony will need to move away from clients to client host, to a client to dedicated server host platform.

Blizzard went through the same issues with hackers and they would patch patch patch but realized it was pointless.

Christopher2894d ago (Edited 2894d ago )

That was a developer decision. Sony usually use dedicated servers for their games, this is one of the very few times the developer decided not to do this.

As far as 'hacking' GT5 for online play, it won't happen. It's very easy to detect if a person is playing a pirated copy of the game (which is required in order to modify game code since code is on the disc) and ban that account.

So, if this ever happened, it would only be useful for single-player experiences.

Sony can detect and ban in the exact same way Microsoft does. They collect your PSN ID, PS3 digital signature, game's digital signature, and location of the game file. They then use this information to determine if the game is pirated (the last part being the most vital sign of such a thing) and then easily ban the PS3 digital signature and PSN ID of the user.

So, if there's going to be piracy and game code hacking, it won't be online.

DeadIIIRed2894d ago

God help this world if companies and nations start to give into demands of every persistent criminal, thinking that they'll just magically go away. They won't, that's why they don't.

rockleex2893d ago

Yea, because Sony did not try to appease the homebrew crowd by allowing OtherOS?

Lol, Sony gave them OtherOS and they turned their backs on Sony and still tried to hack and mod it further in order to gain full control of the PS3.

Why do you think Sony took out OtherOS?

egidem2893d ago

FCUK HACKERS!!! It's for these jerks that now Sony is focusing on fighting piracy instead of giving us more games.

Tjernobieleke2893d ago

Yeah.. you're right! Cause Sony only makes videogames and it's 167900 peeps can only focus at one thing at a time. Ha Ha

samuraiX2893d ago (Edited 2893d ago )


Nothing is as evil as the American government....

Bin laden is their little pet.

sak5002893d ago (Edited 2893d ago )

@lengend well said +bubbs

None of these kids know that, this is classic case of putting rabbies injection into your pet and then when that pet starts attacking your friends families than you turn it into good vs evil story.

He was their biggest assest in afghan war during the 70s fighting RUssia's occupation of afghanistan and when russia was kicked out, USA abbandoned them like step children.

SephireX2893d ago

Did it occur to people that some hackers might just mess with the game for fun instead of trying to cheat?

mrcash2893d ago

this really sucks, no game is safe on the ps3 its one of the reasons i made a switch to the ps i never thought it was going to get hacked like this.

SnakeMustDie2894d ago

This will surely ruin the fun of online on many games on the PS3.

LordMarius2894d ago

I swear if Sony doesnt start handing out bans soon, I might reconsider whether I should continue using PSN or my PS3 for that matter even with KZ3 coming soon.

THC CELL2894d ago

oh shut up man, all they need is a report system in each game and they will be banned stop you moaning sony will do there best to defend the game and your account.

iceman062893d ago

And your option would be!?!? Oh yeah, move to one of the two other consoles that has been hacked for far longer and dealing with the very same issues??? Try again!!!

mrcash2893d ago

the hacks are no where near as bad on xbox they exist but they are nothing like whats going on with games like mw2

iceman062893d ago

Actually, the first place that I encountered hacks was on Xbox 360. Not mine, because I don't own one, but on my friends where I actually get to share in those 360 games that I enjoy. The point being that the threat just seemed to be hollow and empty and fueled by nonsense. All three consoles have been hacked. Sure, the new exploit on MW2 for PS3 takes it to an extreme. But, this is a small percentage (as of now) of gamers on PS3. Which means that his statement was a bit of an overreaction to say the least. As I said before, it is pretty much choosing the lesser of evils at this point.

mrcash2893d ago

its not a small percentage, every other game i play i find these stupid hackers.

iceman062893d ago

Well, I guess we have two different experiences. I don't play COD anymore. I didn't purchase BO and I traded MW2 a long time ago. I pretty much have stuck to MAG and BFBC2 for the last few months. Maybe, we are just playing different games.

Trust me hacking GT5 could only make it better. Maybe they could fix the long ass load time and some of the other problems with the game.

Vega752894d ago

Aw did my comment hurt you poor wittle feelings. Don't blame me for that BS PD put out. I'm just expressing my opinion about the game. I am entitled to to do that.

redsquad2893d ago (Edited 2893d ago )

You had plenty of chance to do your whinging in the many GT5 hate stories that arose when it was initially released. Continuing to bang on about it months after the fact makes you look rather obsessed and desperate.

insomnium22893d ago (Edited 2893d ago )

OMG how predictable and stereotypical deuchebag you are vega. That is so yawn I can't believe I just read that. I think I died a little...O_O

Vega752893d ago (Edited 2893d ago )

Funny I thought this was a place that you could express how you feel about a game. Which is what I'm doing. Because my opinion seems to upset you people is funny. What I'm not allowed to talk bad about a game that wasn't worth the hype it was given by you fanboys. " oh no one allowed to speak negative about a Sony exclusive" get off it. It's not like what I said isn't true or what anybody else hasn't said. The game was very disappointing for the amount of time it took release. If you don't like what I say then ignore my comment. Simple as that

@ insomnium2

I didn't know my comment had that kind of effect on your life if you died alittle by reading my comment. You must don't really have much of a life to begin with.

insomnium22893d ago (Edited 2893d ago )

What? You say someting or was it a fart? Who dares to fart here?!

dragon822893d ago

No actually you didn't hurt my feeling at all. You just came off as a spoiled little cry baby. That's all. Carry on.

Not when you don't own the game. :P

@Vega75: Thanks for the tip. Now, just like in real life, you are now ignored.
